This is a publication by GAO's Inspector General that concerns internal GAO operations. This report was submitted to the Comptroller General in accordance with Section 5 of the Government Accountability Office Act of 2008. The report summarizes the activities of the Office of Inspector General (OIG) for the first reporting period of fiscal year 2017. During this reporting period, we issued four audit reports, continued fieldwork on one audit, started fieldwork on three additional audits, and issued our biennial work plan. We also closed seven investigations and opened eight new investigations. In addition, we processed 137 hotline complaints, which generally did not involve GAO's programs and operations. We remained active in the GAO and OIG communities by briefing new GAO employees on our audit and investigative missions, and participating on Council of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency committees and working groups. OIG staff also briefed participants in a government-sponsored exchange program with Ukraine on the investigative role of the OIG within GAO. Details of these activities and other OIG accomplishments are provided in the accompanying report.
